    What the hell does this mean ……

    Welcome to 404 error page!
    Welcome to this customized error page. You’ve reached this page because you’ve clicked on a link that does not exist. This is probably our fault… but instead of showing you the basic ’404 Error’ page that is confusing and doesn’t really explain anything, we’ve created this page to explain what went wrong.

    You can either (a) click on the ‘back’ button in your browser and try to navigate through our site in a different direction, or (b) click on the following link to go to homepage.

    This just puts you into a loop of endless programmers stupidity.

    Indeed, further-LOL. Although perhaps his booksales might qualify him as a manufacturer [in the sense of Chomsky, perhaps?]. These guys certainly don’t miss a beat where there might be a buck in it.

    Just for fun, and to try to get to the bottom of this ‘stacked congress’ story, try putting this in a search engine:

    ” To give the impression of a full House, congressional pages and staff filled many of the empty seats ”

    Funny how it throws up identical page after page after page after page of repetitious snark drawn from the Washington Post.

    Howard also had a stacked House when he went to lick US arse (like Gillard’s nauseating performance) but the difference in media attention is obvious.

    What I find fascinating is why the crazies can’t accept that Gillard is doing everything they want. Is it a kind of “Uncle Tom” thing?

    Alice I agree, Albrechtsen is a robot, or “fembot” as the gendered term term currently in vogue, puts it.
    I said somewhere, I watched the body language between Albrechtsen and Carlton the other night, only animus.
    Why the ABC continues to stuff the Murdoch commentariat down people’s throats, I can’t fathom.

    Israelis are claiming Gaddafi as one of their own.

    “The story goes that Gaddafi’s grandmother, a Jewess, was married to a Jewish man at first. But he treated her badly, so she ran away and married a Muslim sheikh. Their child was the mother of Gaddafi.” While Gaddafi’s grandmother converted to Islam when she married the sheikh, according to Jewish religious law (and common sense), she was ethnically still Jewish. And that makes Gaddafi’s mother a Jewess. And if Gaddafi’s mother is a Jewess, what does that make Gaddafi?

    At that point in the news report, the anchor exclaimed, “So, the point is that Gaddafi doesn’t just have Jewish relatives, he is Jewish!”

    That may come in handy. According to Israel’s Law of Return, anyone with a Jewish grandparent is entitled to become a citizen, no questions asked.

    What a propaganda coup that would be for the Israelis.

    @paul walter
    Paul – Albrechsten has made money out of being Murdochs poster cild in the say way that Windschuttle veered so sharply right. These weevils only think about a making a buck for themselves depending on who’s willing to pay them? Shrill cacophonists for vested interests (including their own).

    However, methinks since John Howard has gone… that the impact of what Janet Albrechtsen has to say is more than a little passe…like Miranda. Every fad has its time before boredom and predictability set in. They had the benefit of being JH’s echo but when he went they both seem a little redundant. When you know what they are going to say or argue before they do so…their time has passed.

    Don’t underestimate the right. There is an orchestrated carcophany coming from them at the moment right across a raft of issues being tested as election fodder. Orchestrating cricis is not some thing theyare unfamiliar with and Gillard reacted by soothing the Hansonists, by oking the wretched Gunns pulp fiction. I can’t beleive Abbott isn’t a passenger the opposition, though.
    Now you see why she’s laid it on so thick at the White house also. She knows the right is trying to wrest the centre away, sucking up to the americans shows she is not a threat.
    Chess.
